Petals Challenge

I haven't done the challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary for a long long long time.  This sketch somehow spoke to me, so I thought I should try it.
I've been in the mood to make some sympathy, condolences cards.  Probably because a friend's mother's been ill, and she's been working hard to get her mother taken care of; another good friend's husband's untimely death anniversary is coming up; and my father going out of country to pay respects to yet another fine person passed away entirely too soon.  So, here's the card I made.
I used Paisley Petals DSP, both for the square backgrounds and the flower, which I hand cut and popped up with Dimensionals.  OK, I didn't follow the sketch exactly.  I had to change it, because the sentiment I wanted to use is a bit big for the side, so I turned it.  When I turned the card, I had to turn the orientation of the flower, too.

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Word Play
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Papers:  Mellow Moss (retired), Chocolate Chip, Paisley Petals DSP

What a beautiful card! I love how you used the dsp to make up the focal point. And this sentiment is just perfect for a sympathy card! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

Wow! Love how the cut out image is popped up and "floating" above the squares. Pretty card. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge!
